Comments to eBook Jasper Jones
Iesha
I really enjoyed reading this very well written novel which tells the tale of unusual friendships in the 1950s. Jasper Jones is a half caste aboriginal teen who is always in trouble and gets blamed for everything that goes wrong in the town. Charlie Bucktin is the son of a very proper schoolteacher and his ever so uprightious wife. When Jasper comes to Charlie's window one night asking for his help, Charlie can't resist the lure of why the town troublemaker needs him.
When he discovers the reason why Jasper needs him it rocks his world and so a friendship of partner-in-crime develops. Charlie longs to tell him best friend, Vietnamese Jeffrey Lu, who is hated by the town louts, who call him "Cong" and dispite his prowess as a cricketer, dont allow him to be included in their games.
Then there's the daughters of the equally righteous Mayor, Laura and Eliza Wishart. When Laura goes missing, the eccentric hermit, Jack Lionel gets the blame and the police immediately assume Jasper knows something about it. Woven together, these characters create a web of intrigue and mystery. Jay Jay.

Jasper Jones is an intense read on several levels. Young protagonist, Charlie, often makes references to his latest favorite book, To Kill A Mockingbird, and there many similarities in these two novels. Jasper Jones is set in 1960's small rural town Australia. Like To Kill A Mockingbird, Charlie's town is being poisoned by poverty, prejudice, gossip, alcoholism and despair. Charlie ends up in the center of the town's unraveling when he promises his classmate, Jasper, he will keep a horrible secret about something Jasper has discovered - a secret that is the inciting event for dragging all of the town's deplorable secrets out in the open. Charlie is just trying to do the right thing, but how can it be right, if it is causing so many negative consequences? The story has a gripping opening that leads the reader to believe Jasper Jones is a mystery, and it is, partly.
"And I see it. And everything changes. I'm screaming, but they are muffled screams. I can't breathe in. I feel like I'm underwater. Deaf and drowning..."
"We can't tell anybody Charlie. We have to find out who did this."
The first thing readers will think is, how are two young teens going to solve such a huge mystery? The mystery doesn't crop up again for 200 pages. Most of the story focuses on Charlie trying to survive his decision to keep the secret, and his trying to understand what is happening to all of these people he has known all of his life. But when the Charlie and Jasper finally step up to solve the mystery, it brings surprise twists and surprise ending. Like To Kill A Mockingbird, Jasper Jones is foremost a coming of age story. Also like To Kill A Mockingbird, it does not have a happily ever after ending, but it does have a realistic and satisfying ending.

An engaging tale that uses the death of a teenage girl to examine the loss of innocence in rural, mid-70s Australia. I was reminded of Shark Net, Stand By Me, Blue Velvet and To Kill A Mockingboard (the latter because the author kept bringing it up). It is Winton-esque in tone. Although this is a more meandering narrative, which was probably the intent, to reflect life in country areas. The tensions simmer, and simmer, frustratingly at times, as the narrator seeks meaning and significance, expanding on events and descriptions. Adolescence, coming of age, sexuality, racism, domestic abuse, incest, infidelity, and violence are explored on personal, family, community and national levels. When it boils over, it does so with an urgency and inventiveness that is captivating and believable. It's the lulls between that can make you feel like you spent a week in this town one afternoon. That may be its greatest strength and, at times, a small weakness.

I always thought I disliked mystery books, but then I read Jasper Jones. There is an immense amount of character growth from many characters and was an entertaining read. By the time I got to the end, I wanted to read more of it. I'm not saying this because the book ended in an unsatisfying way where the reader is yearning for more information, but instead, Silvey's writing style is just that amazing. When Charlie is nervous for example, Silvey has his inner monologue ramble about how he is feeling. It is a mystery book I definitely do not regret reading.
